Goofs

When the player enters the airport notice that there is a fire station with a "street version" fire truck. That is strange because in reality airports have their own fire trucks which are massive size trucks with six huge tires, not the ones that you see on city streets. See more »

The fun of running through a city and stealing cars and randomly killing people.
2 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

This game was a whole heck of a lot of fun when I got it from a friend one X-mas. I thought it looked rather good, but did not really want to purchase it myself cause I was iffy on it...suffice to say it was the best gift of the year. Never before had I played a game where you could simply walk or drive through town and enjoy the sights, or cause lots of mayhem as you can in this one. You play a guy who has been wronged and works for various crime bosses and such to get your stature back and make it big in Liberty City. The missions can be simple or complex ranging from simple deliveries to assassinating people. You get to run from the cops, pick up prostitutes and do a whole lot of assorted things. You want to simply kill pedestrians, well you can do that too. Just be prepared to be chased by the police and if you are really good the military. At the point the military gets involved you are pretty much done for, still fun trying to evade them if only for a little bit. This one also has a tunnel you can drive through that I used to evade officers time and time again. This on has a much more assorted environment than did Vice City, however I still prefer that game more because while there is a ton of stuff to do here, there is even more in that one. There is also a much better variety of music stations in that one featuring cool 80's music. This one also has the pesky problem of being divided into three sections that when you cross from one to the other you have to wait for some loading. Overall the game is great and a whole lot of fun. It helps that you can do what you want and never feel pressured to continue doing missions like some other games of this type which is probably why this one still thrives and the others have died. Just a whole lot of bloody fun to be had.
